Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Niro isn't our favorite car to drive, but it's perfect for drivers who care as much about fuel efficiency as they do about their budget.

Pros
Efficiently rated up to 52 mpg,
affordable,
practicality of a crossover.

Cons
Some trims lack basic amenities,
uninspiring performance,
plug-in hybrid has limited EV range.

The 2020 Kia Niro's #5 ranking is based on its score within the Hybrid and Electric SUVs category. It was a finalist for our 2020 Best Hybrid or Electric SUV for the Money award. Currently the Kia Niro has a score of 7.7 out of 10, which is based on our evaluation of 16 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Excellent fuel economy
Spacious interior when compared with subcompact SUVs
Intuitive infotainment system

Cons
Not available with all-wheel drive
Interior not as upscale as rivals’
Unimpressive acceleration
